Re: I Want Spacers

Yea probably not. Ql is a neat toy but not really practical for true of roading. I put the 2.5 inch spacer lift on mine but iam waiting for a company to come out with a true suspension lift. Which unfortunatelyvwont work on a QL jeep.

Probably going for a 1.25" spacers for my 2011 wk2.

However, wondering what you guys think about going with a 1.5" spacers to fit a 305/60/18 tire on stock wheels instead of the 275/65/18?

From what I understand, it would translate in a 32.4" tire vs 32.0".

Thanks

Anyone on here have spacers and QL that want to post some pics in the lowest setting (entry/exit mode)? I'd like to see some clearances, particularly b/t top of tire and fender. If you have stock 18" rims, even better. I'm trying to figure how much clearance or room for wheel travel in sport/aerodynamic and park modes given spacer and tire size variables. Thanks

Re: I Want Spacers

Double bump because I don't believe I have seen anyone with an Altitude with spacers yet?

Anyone have spacers with the Altitude wheels?

Hi, if you go back to page 6 there's my cherry red with altitude wheels, I used 1.25" spacers and they fit flush, you do have to cut a couple of mm of the studs but this won't effect you if you choose to change wheels in the future as the bit you cut off isn't threaded.

Thanks.

Was it confirmed that if larger spacers were used (1.5" versus 1.25") - that no cutting would be required?

Re: I Want Spacers

If you get the 1.5" then you won't need to cut the studs but the tyres will stick out a bit, there is a picture on page 7 I think that shows how much they stick out.

They are listed on their site but I couldn't find it on any of their distributor's websites.
